Incorporating Plants To Your Design Style

Updated: Mar 10, 2021

Interior design can be a little tricky. There are a lot of elements that you have to balance together and you need to spend some time thinking about how the final result will look. 

The good thing is, you don’t need to worry about your interior design elements dying out on you. But, if you are working with plants and incorporating them into your design style, there are a lot of things you need to consider. 

You have to make sure that you will give them the right amount of sunlight, atmospheric conditions, and care in order for them to thrive. All of that and you also have to consider the look and feel you’re trying to create. Since different plants require different types and levels of care, you need to plan where you want to put them. 

So, if you want to win at going green and incorporating your plants to brighten up any room, here are some things that you may want to consider:

  • Choosing the Right Colors

A well-coordinated color palette helps intensify the design you want to achieve. So, if you want your design to work for you, you need to stick to your color palettes. 

Once you have your palette, you need to make sure that you should also get plants that will match your color scheme. 

Green or Beige: These colors are the easiest to plant against. Choose flowers or plants with a classic color scheme like soft rosy red, yellow, lavender, or violet-blue. Stay away from bold colors. 

Brown: If you want to go for brown, choose pale-colored plants like those with deep pinks, yellows, and burgundy to create a rich, mellow look.

Yellow: Want to create a dramatic statement? Match your yellows with purples and blues. You’ll love the bold look. 

White: If you have a white background, go for blue, yellow, or pink plants to unify the house and landscape. Avoid dark rich colors so it won’t look too harsh against white. 

  • Choosing the Right Plants

With all the different, beautiful plants available, it can be tricky to choose which ones will go in each room. So, if you want to do this effectively, you need to know what goes where. Well, you don’t need to be an expert, but here are some things that you should keep in mind:

Dining Room: The dining room is a perfect room for floor plants. If you want to spice up the dining table, you can also choose some indoor plants like Marble Queen and Golden Pothos.  Add some nice pots on side tables or shelves, too. 

Living Room Your living room is a good room for floor plants like Philodendron. You can also choose beautiful flowering plants like Bird of Paradise or something nice and subtle like Rubber Plants. If you want to brighten it up with colors, try Begonias. Peace Lily will also work great on your window-sills, shelves, and side-tables. 

Bathroom Now, when it comes to your bathroom, you may want to choose plants that can help in eliminating odors. You can work with Ferns, Snake Plants, Bamboo, Air Plants, and Parlor Palms.

  • Sticking to Your Theme

An effective design stays true to its theme. So make sure that when you choose your plants, they also match the look and feel that you are going for.

What’s your favorite house plant and how do you incorporate it with your design?
